Yad Vashem Preparing for Papal Visit

JewishPress Logo

Yad Vashem, Israel’s Holocaust memorial and museum, will present a replica of a Holocaust-era drawing to Pope Francis when he visits the site next Monday. 

Like Popes Benedict XVI and John Paul II, Francis will visit the Hall of Remembrance, where he will deliver an address and greet six Holocaust survivors. The Pope will be invited to kindle the eternal flame and lay a wreath in memory of the victims of the Shoah.
